My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #29: Subliminal Meanings in Scrollsawing

1481 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As those of you who read this regularly know, yesterday left off with me anxiously waiting for that magic ‘decent’ hour to roll along so that I could get at cutting out my new project. After writing, I did all my morning chores and prepared the wood which I was going to use. I found a beautiful piece of ash that I really liked. Some people don’t like ash because of the difficulties it can present when scrolling. It is sometimes subject to breaking, as the grain can go pre...

I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents.. More woven pattern projects in the wind. It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I hav...

It was bigger than I had thought so a small piece from the ash pile, copy the holes from the original piece of aluminum and counter sink them really far so the bolts will reach. Get the hole spacing for the clamp, drill and counter bore for some T nuts on the back. A test fit onto the fence itself. OK, I need a longer bolt to put the pressure on the square tub...

With all these new power tools, why do we still measure in the dark ages?

1566 days ago by technicallymark | 51 comments »

Quick, which is bigger, 5/16th or 11/32nd? Having trouble? Try this. Which one is bigger 10 or 12? Easy right? I’m all about easy and trying to remember how to convert fractions isn’t really something I want my brain working on with spinning sharp blades around. I’m not sure why we can’t be like the rest of the world and use “metric” for measuring, but it would make life a little easier in the shop. I might be a little biased since I have formal e...
